Wood Stove Brainstorm

Hey fellow nerds,

I am installing my wood stove here in the next week. I have some concerns as to the space in which I am putting it. I have a 28 x 28 space in which you will see the pictures. I have tile that I will be putting down to back my walls. Here is a link of the wood stove that I have and here are some photos of where my project stands. I will tile all the way up covering the bottom window but leaving the "openable" window free.

Concerns: top window getting too hot, space is WAY too small, I am a madman and think it will work

the photos: space 28 x 28 as well as the tile that I will be using

link: the wood stove link to home dildo. ( 15 deep x 22 wide x 33 tall) I know, she is kind of big.

Englander 1,200 sq. ft. Wood-Burning Stove-17-VL - The Home Depot








yeah, it'll work. sure, its gonna be great. uh huh.

Nice stove there. Also like those slate slabs "Run up to the lab and see what's on the slab!"

I ran my wood stove out the window and just replaced the space with a sheet of alluminum. Cut a hole for the 3" chimney and it works like a charm. It's fire so i love it but sometimes when it's burning correct it gets HOT fast and i have to restrict the air to bring it back down. Gets my heart pumping a whisker lol

I would say we are all madmen...or women here. Your stove looks much more appropriately sized than mine. As for side reflectors im using hardie backer with corigated tin spaced off from it with a gap at the top and bottom so there is natural convetion keeping the tin and the hadrie backer cool and converting more of the heat in the wall in to heat in the air.


Here is mine.

Much gooder! the corrugated with gaps to and bottom is great idea.
I might have spaced it out 1/2" or so. Should make for some good natural draft movement of heat.
Put a small fan at ceiling or in walls up high to push that warm air elsewhere.

When I put the stove in my bus almost no heat touches the plate it sits on, lots of heat touches the walls, most of the heat touches the ceiling,
my stove is withing 6in of the walls and 18in of the ceiling, I added one inch of ceramic insulation (looks like fiberglass insulation) and one inch of air insulation, Even with the stove at 800 degrees my thermometer only reads a out 100 degrees in the air space near the ceiling.
I used spacers and chicken wire to keep the ceramic insulation out of the air insulation space.
